Volunteer of the Week

John Goebel
Durham Parks & Recreation Department

Durham Parks & Recreation Department
John Goebel has been called the "single greatest resource" of Durham's Parks & Recreation Department. As a member of the Durham Open Space and Trail Commission and as head of its Trails and Greenways Committee, John has not only spearheaded many of the department’s volunteer building projects but has proposed most of them as well.  He contributes hundreds of hours and recruits, leads and motivates volunteers. 

Most notably, John was responsible for the transformation of Sandy Creek Park in Durham. Under his energetic leadership, the park has been transformed from an underfunded and blighted spot into a wonderful resource for Durham’s citizens, nature camps and schools. John has filled the park with natural areas and trails and has turned an unsafe bridge into an observation deck and a fully accessible bicycle and pedestrian link.  
Thank you, John Goebel, for rescuing Sandy Creek Park and for helping our community!
